NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 03/21/12 -- LatinVision Media Inc., a New York-based organizer of conferences and networking events focused on marketing to U.S. Hispanics and Latin American businesses and consumers, today announced that its upcoming "Sports Marketing to Latinos Conference" will feature executives from Fox Deportes, the NFL, NASCAR, the USTA, Universal Sports and ESPN Deportes, among others.
High-profile speakers will address sports marketing best practices, growth opportunities, and case studies relevant to capturing the estimated $1.2 trillion in consumer purchasing power of US Hispanics and even more, when considering Latin Americans.
"Sports passion is embedded in Latino culture. Their interest in sports goes beyond the stereotypes of soccer. Hispanics, for one, are not only huge fans and spectators of other sports, we are players; online and offline, and on the social and mobile side, we over-index. We get completely immersed and want a '360 experience' of watching, reading, commenting, and sharing -- anytime and anywhere," expressed Carlos Vassallo, CEO of LatinVision Media Inc., the conference's organizing firm.
"Marketers and communication executives know by now that Latinos are the fastest growing market in the US. The question still is how to best engage them and make that deep emotional connection, and make their brands resonate to become the first choice among Hispanics. Our conference series does exactly that; it brings to the table the proven tools and best practices that will help attendees gain market share by leveraging the Latino passion points. Not only that, but the networking opportunities are tremendous."
The full-day conference will feature a variety of personal presentations and moderated panels, with audience Q & A and ample time to network, from 8:30am until 5pm, followed by an exclusive networking reception with complimentary beverages and hors d'oeuvres, designed for one-on-one exchanges and heavy networking.
